Lost in Love - Charlotte Roth

Hi friends, Sorry I've been silent for such a long time. As a writer, it feels odd to say that I've been lost for words. But I have... At the end of summer, I lost my dad-in-law. I call him that 'cause that's who he was to me--my second dad. The grief was overwhelming and for the longest time, I couldn't write. See, he was one of my biggest fans. He was so not my target audience but he loved every single thing I ever wrote--my emails, my silly texts (always signed, "the crazy lady with all the spoiled rotten kids") and, yes, my books..."It's like I can hear your voice and see you laugh when I read your books," he always used to say. I just finished my latest book, Lost in Love . I finally managed to write again because he would've wanted me to. And, oh, how I wish he could read this one too. His favorite book was my first book ever, Lost in Seattle, and I'm sure he would have loved to read more about this crazy family in the

1965 Chevy C10 Pick Up Hotrod - Wessels Motors

Wessels Motors agreed to an update to their website recently. They have been a client of mine since I bought my rather old 1998 Merc. We only trust them to service our car and it gives us good mileage without any problems. Below is an interesting article that I think many petrol heads would enjoy. Old vehicles were manufactured to last. Thank you JPW Manufacturing . 1965 Chevy C10 Pick Up Eugene Els from Kempton Park grew up around cars. His dad used to fix cars in his spare time and Eugene used to hang out with him as a kid whilst he was busy. It was from here that his interest in cars grew. He always had a soft spot for a classic, however; he did not want an old car with an underpowered engine and bad breaking so the solution for him was always going to be a Hotrod. The paint, the colour, the engine – the whole look just appeals to him. Eugene Els’ brother-in-law Ross picked up the 1965 Chevy C10 from a township in Rustenburg. At the time, Eugene didn’t even know what

Every Man Loves What He Is Good At

I started typing this article in Grammarly and titled it, "Ups and Downs," but changed it after I found an appropriate image to "Every man loves what he is good at." I hope you will enjoy reading it. Yesterday I watched a video on Facebook where a guy was talking about life and how we don't like negative changes that come into our lives. There are times when we are happy and times when we are sad because of a loss or when a loved one has died. He painted different scenarios that are opposites in our lives and made the point that if everything remained the same, it's like a constant flat line - just like when you die. But the ups and downs in our lives are like an ECG graph of our heartbeat going up and down continuously. That was his perception of being alive. Nothing remaining constant, but moving up and down all the time. To take it a step further, the next time when I'm down I can accept that and know that things will get better just like he
